Makaton Monday ~ To Cook

Cooking and Baking has featured lots for Bruiser this last week. It was Wriggler’s 7th birthday and Bruiser helped me bake his cake and buns.

Baking is a very messy affair where Bruiser is concerned. But that’s half the fun right 🙂 For Bruiser though it’s a huge leap from 9 months ago when he couldn’t even bear to have dirty hands, clothes or pretty much anything. He refused to touch anything that would make him dirty. This then impacted on his eating as he refused to touch food and feed himself. The last 9 months have been hard work but his Food Play Therapy is really paying off now. It’s lovely to now share these moments with Bruiser and for him to actually enjoy it.

The sign ‘To Cook’ is a very recent addition to Bruiser’s signabulory in its own right. However, he has been using it for months now in conjunction with the sign for ‘Room’ to represent ‘Kitchen’. By the end of the weekend he was using it with the sign ‘Cake’ as in ‘bake a cake’.
